Lindsay on Surveillance Tape -- I Told Ya So!

3/7/2011 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources close to Lindsay Lohan tell TMZ she thinks the fact Kamofie & Co. sold the surveillance video of her proves what she's been saying all along ... they are just using her to make a quick buck.

As we previously reported, the jewelry store worked with a broker to peddle the tape -- despite the fact lawyers for the prosecution asked them not to, fearing it would ruin their case.

Now the tape is out there ... and sources close to Lindsay tell us she feels vindicated.  Lindsay insists it proves Kamofie & Co. are trying to capitalize on the situation and are motivated entirely by money.

Lindsay hopes the store's actions will sway public opinion -- and the prosecution -- to see things her way.

I love how this particular story gets twisted over surveillance tapes showing her stealing the necklace.

My god, we've seen video of people attempting to kidnap, rape, or murder someone BEFORE the trial.

Good TRY to the dope who thinks this is such a huge case and that selling the video changes the facts of the case.

When will the media realize that they are actually insulting our intelligence by writing stories like this and trying to make us think differently.

The shame is, is that the store did make money off of selling the video, but that doesn't mean the crime DIDN'T occur. It just means we now get to see it ! YIPPEE!!! dopes

It's sad Lindsay is going to get jailtime for this. She has spent a lot of time turning herself around. It's a shame some douche with a jewelry store lucky enough to have a celeb as a customer decided to double-cross her and take her to court for "grand theft". There's even video evidence saying it wasn't stolen.

Judges keep making the horrible mistake saying "shes just like everyone else, famous or not". It's time they realize something. She isn't. She's famous and she has had some issues in the past. She's not the same as everyone else, she's a walking lawsuit-target.

I hope she is right and this bastard's ****ed up greed selling confidential evidence destroys the case. They even got the @#$%^@ necklace they LOANED her back. They lost nothing. WTF are they crying grandtheft for??

Linds, just because you robbed immoral people does not mean you are vindicated. It just shows that you have no remorse and have serious problems. It shows that you are a destructive force and hurt everyone you come in contact with. It shows that you have serious denial and entitlement problems, just as your deadbeat dad does. Hmmmph.

If she walked out of the store without paying for it, it's stealing.
At least it would be for you or I.

I'm not disappointed at all that this happened... Sure I'm opposed to celebrities who think they're above the law but after hearing 'You're going to jail no matter what' and 'I don't care if you're a celebrity' said to often in the case of Lindsay, I kind of just want her to stick out her tongue at TMZ, the judge and the prosecutor, and go 'Na na na na' just on principle. This whole ordeal with the necklace just seemed to have blown out of proportion, and basing solely on what I've read on TMZ it seems that everyone's been focused too entirely on the necklace almost as if they were just waiting for something to nail Lindsay and found this to be the perfect opportunity and were reluctant to let it slip... Wasn't there something about a DUI and violation of her probation involved? So much talk about the necklace that I can't even remember if there was.

C'mon Lilo, people will watch the tape, the fact you forgot to drop 2400 for the goods will tell the story.

Oh and those pics of you wearing it around town. Did the jewelry store make money on that too?

Her top lip looks absolutely ridiculous. She was such a pretty girl before, I just can't see past that puffy lip now.

The jeweler's greed doesn't mean Lindsay didn't steal. It shows
the jeweler's wallow in the mud with Lindsay. Personally I'd
love to know who purchased the tape because I'm betting it was purchased with funds from Lindsay by a friend of Lindsay's but that said, it's all smoke to cover up the initial issue...Lindsay stole and violated her probation!

She's a drug addict, an alcoholic, carjacker, kidnapper, reckless driver, chronic thief, chronic liar, arrogant you-know-what, unprofessional, untalented

and is the offspring of a convicted felon who did serious time in state prison, who is a Bible toting fake Christian, drug addict, chronic liar, women beater, rage-aholic, control freak, famewhore

and a delusional, arrogant, chronic liar, famewhore, wannabe celebrity, cheat mother.

I'm done here.

Let the pro-Lohan contingent talk to themselves.

Karma is a b*tch and someday Lindsay will pay a huge price for her lack of character, lack of integrity and her lying cheating ways.

It's been "interesting."

Bye all.....

Idiots who put money before justice get what they deserve. This puts the store owner in a bad light and will call into question their motives not only for selling the security tape but indeed their motives behind the whole theft accusation. I'm not saying Lohan is innocent (or guilty) just that the owners are behaving in a manner that portrays them as greedy and opportunistic. This speaks to their motives, credibility and ethics, all of which should be perceived as honourable and just if they are going to convincingly play the part of the injured victim.
